AFL, draft, Gold Coast Suns, Jack Lukosius, Izak Rankine, Ben King


Gold Coast has either laid the foundations of some overdue AFL success or it’s yet another false dawn for the struggling expansion club.

No-one doubts they made sound choices at last week’s national draft but the real question is whether they can keep those players long-term.

As expected, Gold Coast chose South Australian talents Jack Lukosius and Izak Rankine with the second and third picks and then went for Victorian key position prospect Ben King at No.6.

Jez McLennan at No. 23 was their third SA choice and academy graduate Caleb Graham (No. 71) rounded out their selections.
